MSc in Quantitative Economics and Finance


The MSc in Quantitative Economics and Finance is taught across two semesters. The curriculum is designed around the principal pillars of both disciplines: mathematics and statistics, econometrics, macro- and microeconomics, financial theory, general equilibrium theory, and empirical analysis. In addition, students can chose from a number of optional courses, covering different areas of theory and policy.

In their final semester, students complete a Master thesis. Topics for the Master thesis are coordinated together with the programme director and thesis supervisor. The Master thesis is an original piece of research that should showcase a thorough understanding of the chosen topic as well as the appropriate research methodology. The thesis project concludes with a public defense.
